Trickster Episode 7: Flashback time!


Not much to say on this one. The episode ended up being pretty much all background. Honestly, it made me think this series really should be more focused on Twenty Faces, but what can you do? I would have liked to have seen more on the circumstances around the death of the first Akechi, but I guess that wasn't important? This episode seemed a bit confused.

First off...screw you for randomly cutting into this flashback montage. Secondly, can we...just move on? I've had about enough of this song. It doesn't sound great and it literally makes no sense with what's happening in the flashbacks.

What? I guess this is Twenty Faces, but still...what?

Well, this scene is random. If they're trying to paint Akechi as questionably worse of a person than Twenty Faces, then I guess this might work.

Yeah yeah...this guy has problems with his father. Might be a bit late for that...

Kobayashi's shield turns off because...eh, why not? Comedic effect!

Okay, this is the best transition I've seen so far in this episode.

Seriously, who thinks like this?

Ohh...so that's what it is?

Hmm...this isn't bad. If the series focused on Akechi and Twenty Faces more, it could be more interesting. I like that Twenty Faces marks the "killer" Akechi as evil, vowing never to kill. If we knew more about the two, we might question which of them is more "right". But as it stands, I dunno...

And throw in his brother too for good measure. Why not?

    It kind of feels like this could have been set up back in episode 1 or 2 and I think you're right in that if the series was focussed on Akechi and Twenty-Face it would be a better show. But even after this it is clear we're going back to focussing on the jump suit kid and his family issues so we'll probably just get to speculate about the anime they could have made.

    A lot. Jumpsuit guy should get himself shot and hospitalised for awhile and then we can start being irritated by the other characters instead - or maybe just get some better storylines for awhile.
